Puppet Rolls Out Remediate

Puppet has rolled out Remediate. This release aligns with the ongoing consolidation between IT Operations and IT Security.

On August 21, 2019, IT automation vendor Puppet announced the release of its new tool, Remediate, focused on security vulnerability remediation.

Puppet Remediate brings together data from existing security tools that identify vulnerabilities, including Tenable, Qualys, and Rapid7. In doing so, Remediate bridges the gap between IT Ops and Security – which all too often interact via manual handoffs.

Remediate also allows for prioritization of vulnerabilities and helps take action to remediate vulnerabilities in an automated fashion.

Our Take

Puppet’s launch of Remediate aligns with the trend toward integrating IT Ops and Security Operations.

Info-Tech has noted this trend in the vendor space, which may see some consolidation take place in the coming years. We also see this trend reflected in leading-edge organizations and how they are transforming their processes to break down silos between development, operations, and security.

DevSecOps is often easier said than done, however. Finding a combination of tools and processes that work for your organization will remain as challenging as ever.
